Happy Blogiversary To Maryland Scramble!

   Oh my. Has it really been a year? Yes, it has. 366 days (it’s a leap year, remember) ago tonight, this lunatic establishment began with a single post. Curtain up. Lights. Sound. Cue music. Here we go. I didnt know then what would happen. I just knew that I had something to say, that others liked it, and that I… Read more »

Tomorrow’s News Tonight

No, not the title of a new John Oliver psychic show, but a confident prediction of what we’ll be reading about when the sun comes up on a Wednesday morning: Anonymous Oriental rug experts posing as political pundits will report that responsibility for today’s North Korean nuclear test should be squarely placed on the shoulders of “atheist heathen” CD8 candidate Jamie Raskin.

A Position I Didn’t Know I Held In An Organization I Didn’t Know Existed

In response to my after midnight post about Adam Pagnucco’s letter to County Attorney Marc Hansen, Barry O’Connell was sufficiently outraged that he wrote the following Facebook post.    Pure comedy gold. “Explaining how to read a legal case” = “scathing blog based hatchet job.” I had no idea.

I figure it might help me double or even triple my salary as a blogger. Voting ends November 12. Much obliged for your support. Vote here.

Those Ballot Boxes Aren’t Going To Stuff Themselves

For the next 10 days, excepting the various municipal elections being held tomorrow, there’s only one campaign that matters: vote for Maryland Scramble for Best Politics Blog in the Baltimore Sun poll. You can vote once per day, so get busy. I’ll be watching, rest assured. Seriously, I had no idea this was coming. I just saw it on Twitter. It’s… Read more »

Maryland Juice Is Back

And there’s a new sheriff in town: Matt Verghese, formerly with the Maryland Democratic Party and Anthony Brown and currently an aide to District 5 County Councilmember Tom Hucker, is now at the controls. I look forward to having another blogger around. There’s room enough for far more than one voice in this conversation. But if he looks at me cross-eyed,… Read more »
